Nashua landscaper accused of failure to do job, charged with theft
A Nashua landscaper was charged with theft earlier this month after a homeowner accused him of not completing work for which he was paid last summer.
Police arrested William Mackey, 31, of 84 Lock St., on April 5 and charged him with theft by deception, a Class B felony, police said.
Police were called in July, and a city resident said he paid Mackey $1,500 for landscaping work but that Mackey never even began the project, police said.
Detectives investigated and eventually got the arrest warrant they executed earlier this month, police said.
Mackey was arraigned at Nashua district court on April 6 and is being held at Valley Street jail in Manchester on an unrelated charge, police said.
The felony is punishable by up to seven years in prison, plus fines, police said.
